Rated 10 out of 10 by Ramssbert Good Game for Long Hours
The game is great it lets you play almost like a mixture of oblivion and champions of norrath. you can do the main quest line if you would like and that is it but you can also go around and level up and do other quests to get better gear and cool mounts. You will enjoy this game if you buy it. There have been a few times when i was playing it (I have played for 40 hours already) and maybe 4-5 times they game would just either freeze or stop loading and I would have to restart. The good thing is that the game seems like it auto saves after everything so you may only have to redo something for 10 minutes instead of 2 hours. game is fun and really fun when playing with others. Though multi player does have its flaws. when playing online or in story the game only recongnizes the hosts. story line and saves their progress. you cannot trade between another character either if you are playing on the same system. although there are flaws it is a fun game at that with COUNTLESS hours of fun behind it if you like hack and slash.

While this is a fun game to play, there are some issue that need to be worked. The biggest problem so far is the HUD. It's really confusing trying to figure out which direction you're heading without having to stop and check the map every 5 seconds to make sure you're going where you want to go. The HUD needs to be stationary (setting the HUD to static is an option, but it doesn't change anything), but instead, it moves around with the player's direction. As such, you have no way to know whether you're heading N, S, W, or E. It gets quite frustrating in the larger towns like Thylysium where all the streets and buildings look exactly the same. Other than that, the game is a lot of fun. The quests are easy to discover and complete and there are loads of weapons/armor/accessories to outfit your character. Additionally, depending on which campaign you choose (light or dark), you can either help save Ancaria, or send it into ruin!
Rated 8 out of 10 by FreeRPGer Huge & epic, with humor & only a couple flaws.
I scoped Sacred 2: Fallen Angel for the PS3. Indeed, Sacred 2 is one of the largest Diablo-like hack & slash aRPGs, with tons of loot and a huge open world, that I've played. Its not linear. It has its moments with off-putting humor that made me burst out in laughter. It caught me by surprise with the *Blind Guardian* quest, then had the band Blind Guardian and one of their songs in the game ... with a great (out of place) guitar weapon as a reward. Having a metal band in a past-time mythological fantasy setting doesn't make sense, and that's what I loved about it. Don't take me wrong: It takes itself seriously most of the time, and at others it has odd humor, but it works. This is a great game for those who love hack & slash aRPGs. WARNING: just don't think Sacred 3 is anything like this. Sacred 3 is nowhere near as good, and is a whole different style game that shouldn't even have "Sacred" in the title, as its more an arcade game, not an aRPG with tons of loot. Did I mention Sacred 2 is huge? Its huge. Oh, and it does have a couple flaws, but they're easily overlooked. The one that irked me most is that one can only enable one teleporter at a time. It'd have saved hours of walking if the player could enable all of them at once. Over & out.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Armondpb Worst RPG ever?
Yeah I would put this game in with the "Worst games i've ever played list"I first got the game a few day's ago i decided to buy it a few hours later it went right back to the store.The controls are "clunky" I kept hitting the wrong buttons.The interface is a JOKE, i'm sure they spent all of ten min's putting the interface together.the story line is even worse and the voice acting is OKAY (i've heard alot worse) but while in battle you just want to scream "Shut up!" because they do get annoying. it's not as "highly' customizable as the game wants you to think... some toons don't get new hair... you can't change anything about them but their gear and trust me... the gear is not that good looking.The lay out of the world is utterly confusing, running around and grinding up SLOWLY to gain lvl's.I think the BIGGEST disappointment of all though are the graphics! it would have been great for 1999 but we are in 2009 and If I full price for a game it BETTER have awesome graphics... sadly .. noI made this account to beg you not to get this waste of time game.... it's simply a waste of money and time.

Rated 10 out of 10 by 619 Sacred 2
After getting this the day after it came out, and loving Baldurs Gate, Champions of Norath etc., I had to get this hack n slash. The map/world is HUGE. It must be to use 5gigs on your HDD. Tons of stuff to get on here. The one thing it seems the hit detection is hit or miss and not as thorough as Baldurs Gate. Not being able to choose male or female on each character sucks in a way but its still fun. I'm using Seraphim character and she kicks butt. Strong weapons, tons of weapons. This reminds me of a cross between Baldurs Gate and Everquest because theres' so many side quests! I've been knocking out more side quests before I hit the main story. Switch to your map to find where your objective is. I haven't played with buddy online yet but not being able to save with another friend character sounds foul but I'm sure they will have DLC soon.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Greedo Awsome RPG-Hack n slash
This game has a bit of it all Good and bad, lots of monsters lots of upgrades, loot, weapons, spells and even mounts. The controls are easy and the fact that you have no mana to waste is awesome instead you get a cool down or what they call in the game a refresh time for a spell. Very fun to just run around and just kill stuff they made the quest very easy to find you do not have to waste 3 hours hunting for a quest just head in the area thats marked on the map and hope you can kill the mobs needed i would recommend this game to anyone that likes rpg hack n slash. I can see myself playing the other characters once i have had my fill with the inquisitor wich freaking rocks btw cause he talks trash when he kills mobs And i chose ker as his divine power and the demon he summons is awsome but lookout cause he can turn on you.

Let me start by saying that I am very upset at my self for not getting this game the first day it was released. I kept letting the game sit there LoL But I just said one day Hmm Let me go pick this game up USED so that I can give it a try.(Smart Idea)And for some reason I can't stop playing this game at all.The graphics looks decent,the game play is pretty fun,the story is a None Stop thing.You finish 1 quest and you get another.(Which Is Great)The camera is K but they could had did a lot better..Its similar to Untold Legends for the psp and Untold Legends but believe me before you know it you'll be playing it and wont notice the camera angles lol.What other RPG game is out on the ps3 that Max out at level 200 and is 4 player Online co-op and also PvP huh....C'mon go pick up the game used and give it a try K.....
Rated 10 out of 10 by BTemp Best RPG I have played on the PS3
Before I purchased this game I was playing several multiplayer games (mostly shooters) switching between them. Once I got this game it is about the only game I am playing. If you ever liked either of the Diablo games then you should love this game. I have several characters with my highest at level 26 (seems the game goes to 200?) It is hard to stop playing once you start. There are quests all over the vast world, there are mounts to ride to make traveling faster (even unique class mounts with a quest). The skill system is about as detailed as I think you can get for a console game. The controls work great, I think this game fits a console perfectly and I don't miss the computer keyboard at all. If Diablo III comes out on the PS3 (which it should IMO) it will have a hard time being better than this game.

This game is addicting and fun. It's a nice game to have when you are waiting for new releases to come out. My only complaint is that your charater is small when playing co-op and you can't zoom in on it. However, you get use to it and the game is still fun. The single player mode is really cool because you can see the charater better. I like that you can change your armor all the time with new stuff and you can ride different creatures. The graphics are good. They look more like a computer graphics than PS3 or Xbox, but again it's a good game while waiting for others. If you like Obilvion, but hate reading through the whole game, then this will be a good game for you. Overall I guess this game is truley a 7 1/2 out of 10, mainly because of the camera views, but for enjoyment I would give it an 8 or 9.
